The Pensylvania Railroad is
placing large orders for steel cars
to replace the wooden coaches.
The greater number of deaths
in,railroad accidents is attributed
to the burning of the coaches

Saxon or Teutonic stock as the

The Provincial government of
Manitoba is about to construct a
municipal telephone system
making Winnipeg the starting
point of all long distance li nes
throughout the province.
The Washington hotel, one of
the old landmarks of Seattle,
was destroyed by fire on the
evening of April 3rd. The loss
is estimated at $10,090, with no insurance. An unconfirmed rumor
has it that contractors who have
been gradually tearing down the
building set it ablaze, thereby
saving $1500 in wrecking. The
building was owned by James A.
Moore, who will build a new
hotel on the site.
Wreckage, apparently from
some large sailing vessel, is
coming ashore between Car-
manah and Clo-oose, on the west
coast of Vancouver Island. It is
believed some vessel has foundered at some distance from the
coast. A piece of teakwood rail,
eight feet in length, has come
ashore in the vicinity of Car-
manah. There are also long
pieces of deck of white pine and
several large panels of maple,
veneered with mahogany and
bordered with black. At Clo-
oose, a large yard with some
pieces of sail attached, was
San Francisco has been visited
by another disaster, this time in
the form of a two and a half million dollar fire. On Tuesday night
the electric light and power plant
of the San Francisco Gas and
Electric Company, situated at
22nd Ave. and Georgia Streets,
was entirely wiped out and five
firemen seriously injured. The
city was plunged in darkness and
all business for the time paralyzed. A steam pipe is said to
have exploded in the engine room,
scattering fuel oil in all direction. The latter immediately
caught fire and in a few minutes
the entire building was wrapped
in flames.
A Montreal dispatch dated
April 3, says that Dr. William
Henry Drummond, one of Canada's best known literary men,
author of the Habitant and other
volumes of verse, was stricken
yesterday with paralysis at Cobalt, whither he had gone in
charge of work on the Drummond
mine, owned by his brothers and
The best medical aid obtainable
has been hurried to Cobalt from
this city, and the condition of the
stricken man is said to be serious.
Nova Scotia has taken the initiative in regard to providing
pensions for the disabled and
aged. The bill introduced by
Premier Murray provides for the
appointment of a committee to
formulate a scheme for the establishment of an annuity fund
for the coal workers or the province. To this fund, the miners,
coal operators and government
shall each contribute two cents
per month for every miner
seventeen years old or over. At
the end of three years this will
provide an annuity for workmen
permanently disabled, and for
all men over 63 years of age.
The chief social event of ....
week was the Volunteer Fire
Brigade Ball on Monday night in
Henderson's Hall.
Although the attendance was
not quite as large as at some of
the season's previous similar
function, it is doubtful if a more
pleasant evening has ever been
spent in Chilliwack by those who
love to "trip the light fantastic
toe." About fifty couples, gay
and beautiful, as became the occasion, "chased the hours with
flying feet," to the strains of the
Chilliwack orchestra.
Of the firemen of other places
who had been invited, Chief D.
H. Dick of North Vancouver,
was the only representative
present. Chief Watson of New
Westminster, planned to come,
but the loss of two men from his
force within a few days, made
his absence from the Royal City
inadvisable. Chief Carlisle of
Vancouver, was also expected,
but was likewise detained by
pressure of official duties.
Those who are only familiar
with the appearance which Henderson's Hall presents on ordinary occasions, would have experienced a delightful surprise had
they peeped in upon the scene
presented on Monday night. No
pains had been spared by the fire
laddies under the tasty tutelage
of Mrs. Thomas Knight, in
making the place as bright and
attractive as its architectural
defects would allow. An artistic
blending of bunting, evergreen
and flowers, disguised all that
was unsightly, while the floor
shone as the result of a skilful
blending of wax and elbow-
grease. Add to this the gay costumes and graceful movements
of the fair dancers and the picture was as bright and pleasing
to the onlooker as the old hall
has ever seen.
The music discoursed by the
orchestra under the efficient direction of Carl Grossman, was
all that could be desired and
called forth many expressions of
About midnight the gay company repaired to the Commercial
Hotel, where mine host Dundas
had excelled himself in spreading
a tempting repast Having refreshed themselves, the dancers
returned to the hall for a few
hours further gaiety in the giddy
whirl, dispersing to their several
homes before the "wee 'sma
hours" had grown too large.
The ball was as pronounced a
success financially as otherwise,
despite the small attendance. To
the credit of the management
the net proceeds amount to
$39.50, which go to swell the
funds of the brigade for the
purposes of further equipment.
Had the people who usually
patronize such functions given
their loyal   support,   a  much
X many
  .... Joys are making creditable progress with
their equipment, which now includes a hook and ladder truck,
two hose reels, four nozzles and
two Keystone chemical extinguishers. The latest acquisition
is a 900 lbs. bell which arrived
last week from Hillsboro, Ohio.
This will probably be installed
over the Fire Hall, Knight's
building, in a few days. Thus it
will be seen that through the
generosity and self-sacrifice of a
goodly number of our public spirited citizens we shall have a fairly respectable fire-fighting equipment to be handed over to the
new Corporation when formed.
All honour to those who have
done the pioneer work.
Close Call
What might easily have proved a
fatal accident occurred at the Vedder
Crossing on Tuesday of this week.
While the crew of men in charge of S.
J. Youmans were engaged on the rock
wall which is to protect the river bank,
a fallen tree broke loose up the mountain side and came tearing down the
steep declivity. Sam Dan happened to
be the unfortunate man in the path of
the on-coming log, and only escaped instant death by being partially protected
by the bank beneath which he was
working. As it was, his back was s r-
iously injured, resulting in temporary
paralysis of his legs. He was removed
to his home at Sardis and Dr J. C.
Henderson at once summoned. How
serious his case may prove it is hard to
say at present, but it is hoped that he
has sustained no internal injuries and
may soon be about apnin. Mr. Dan
has a wife and several eiiiidren dependent upon him .-.:i! in! ti; misfortune
to be bnrnt out in the Sweetman place
about a month ago losing everything.
He is living at the present time in a
cottage belonging to A. C.Wells & Son,
opposite H. Hulbert's place.

The Socialists and Old Aye Pen
Editor Advance: Dr, Young
has introduced a bill into the
Provincial Legislature to endow
a Provincial University by setting
aside a million acres of land.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite objected on
the grounds that it was claw;
legislation and that the money
would be better applied to old age
pensions. Mr. Hawthornthwaite
is not consistent. The humblest
and lowliest person in British
Columbia should have an opportunity of receiving a university
education. If Mr. Hawthornthwaite really has the interests of
the people at heart he should not
obstruct legislation intended to
promote their welfare. It is to
be regretted that Mr. Hawthornthwaite is not more evenly
balanced. Many of his efforts
are worthy of more loyal members of society, and, personally,
while depreciating his action in
regard to the University Bill I
appreciate anything he can do to
secure the workers of this province, against want and discomfort in their old age, by setting
apart a portion of the Crown
As time rolls on there will be
more [need for such a provision,
as women are now entering, in
increased numbers, into the domain of labor. They are not paid
adequately for the work they
perform and it is only right
that, in their latter days, they
should be amply provided for.
The land belongs to the people
and it matters not whether anyone of the people is born a man,
or a woman, he or she, have
equal rights as far as any herit-
ance they have entered into as
British Columbians, is concerned.
In no better way can the future
of a woman, if she remain unmarried, be provided for, than
underthe old age pension scheme.
The scheme should permit of her
receiving a pension at the age of
fifty, as women need rest earlier
than men. If Mr. Hawthornthwaite is in fa'; or of the old age
pensions we certainly shall not
expect any opposition from the
Socialists when the matter is before the legislature.
Frank Richards, J. P.
Vancouver, March 27th, 1907.
My Education���I was taught
all sorts of things, and learned
all sorts of languages. By dint
of imprudence and quackery I
sometimes passed for a savant.
My head lias become a library of
odd volumes, of which I keep
the key.
My Sufferings- 1 was tormented by teachers; by tailors who
made tight dresses for me ; by
women ; by ambition ; by self-
love ; by useless regrets, and by
Memorable Epochs.���At the
age of thirty, I gave up dancing;
at forty, my endeavors to please
the fair sex ; at fifty my regard
of public opinion ; at sixty, the
trouble of thinking; and I have
become a true sage, or egotist���
which is the same thing.
Respectable Principles.���I have
never meddled in any marriages
or scandal, I have never recommended a cook or a physician,
and consequently have never attempted the life of anyone.
My Dislikes.���I had a dislike
to sots and fops, and to intriguing women, who make a game
of virtue; a disgust for affectation; pity for made-up men and
painted women; an aversion to
rats, liquors, metaphysics, and
rhubarb; and a terror of justice
and wild beasts.
Analysis of My Life.���I await
death without fear and without
impatience. My life has been a
bad melodrama on a grand stage,
where I have played the hero,
the tyrant, the lover, the nobleman, but never the valet.
My Epitaph.���Here lies, in
hope of repose, an old deceased
man with a worn-out spirit, an
exhausted heart, and a used-up
body. Ladies and gentlemen,
pass on !-The Scrap Book.
The chief clhim which Feodor
Vasilievich, Count Rostopchin,
lays upon the memory of mankind is his action when Napoleon advanced upon Moscow, of
which, at that time, Count Rostopchin was governor-general.
The ancient Muscovite capital
was the goal of the French conqueror's expedition, but he occupied the city only to have it
burned about his ears.
For the burning of Moscow
Rostopchin receives the blame or
the credit, though he himself
later denied specific responsibility.
It is known, however, that he
fired his own villa, near the city,
and surely that was an example
to be followed. Whatever the
truth on this point, the Russian
Count was a strongly marked
character, a man of original
quirks and many oddities. He
was removed from office in 1814,
and retired to Paris, where he
devoted himself to literature.
We may yet get his flavor from
his singular autobiography,
which is so brief that we print it
in full with no fear of tiring our

My Birth-On the 12th day of
of March, I emerged from darkness into the light of day. I was
measured, I was weighed, I was
baptized. I was born without
knowing wherefore, and my parents thanked Heaven, without
knowing for what.
One ot the Saddest Stories.
First it was a cold, neglected of course
and catarrh developed. Nothing was
done and consumption followed. Watch
the little cold, keep it from growing by
using "Catarrhozone." nothing simplier
than inhaling the germ-killing vapor of
this grand remedy. Colds and Catarrh
flee as before Are. Every trace of
throat and bronchial trouble yields immediately. Catarrhtzoneis guaranteed
for preventing and curing catarrh and
kindered ills. Two sizes, 35c and $1.00

The Bride's Wedding Present.
A Congressman on a visit to
New York the other day called
on an old friend, an alderman,
down town. While they were
chatting an Italian couple came
in and asked in broken English
if the alderman would unite them
in marriage.' The alderman performed the ceremony, and, after
accepting the modest fee, politely handed the bride an umbrella.
The Congressman observed the
proceedings gravely, and, after

Perhaps no piece of legislation
in recent years, either provincial
or federal, has occasioned more
widespread interest or more
general discussion than the
Lord's Day Act which came into
effect throughout the Dominion
on March 1st. Whatever may
be our political prejudices or religious convictions, there can be
little difference of opinion as to
the desirability of having some
sort of Sunday legislation. Xo
well balanced, sensible man, who
is loyal to his country's best interests, can desire to see the time
honored and divinely established
institution of one rest day in
seven lightly set aside. From
the standpoint of the state the
question is not, however, one of
religion, but rather a question
of the maintenance of those
orderly conditions within its
bonk is which secure to its
citizens the largest measure of
personal liberty, which minister
most generally to the highest interests of all and which contribute most largely and effec-
tfvelyto its own preservation.
In some of the older countries of
the world a spirit of mediaeval
ecclesiasticism may lead men still
to cling to the tottering anachronism of organic union between religion and statecraft.
but such incongruous relations
are not tolerated on this western
continent. By no process of
logic can interference with the
religious faith or practice of the
individual be shown to be a
function of the state. So generally
and so absolutely has this principle been accepted by the people
that there is no longer occasion'
for argument in order to estabish
its soundness. It only remains
for us fearlessly, faithfully, and
conscientiously to apply it to
every case which may present
itself for adjudication.
Assuming, then, the tenability
of this position, the vital question in connection with the new
Sunday law must be, do the requirements of this Act trench upon the rights and liberties of the
individual? We believe that
there is a very general feeling
throughout this province, at
least, that they do, and we believe that to this feeling, quite as
much as to an inordinate greed
for gain, is due the opposition
which has developed west of the
Rockies to an enforcement of the
Act. A careful analysis of the
second section of the act, which
constitutes the gist of the entire
chapter, will show what justification there is, if any, for this
feeling.   It reads as follows :���
"It shall not be lawful for any
person on the Lord's Day, except
as provided herein or in any provincial Act or law now or here-.
after in force, to sell or offer for
sale or purchase any goods, chattels, or other personal property,
or any real estate, or to carry on
or transact any business of his
ordinary calling, or in connection with such calling, or for
gain, to do or employ any other
person to do, on that day, any
work, business or labor."
i,, the words of The Lord's
Day Advocate, "This section is
very sweeping, It applies to not
only iiiiiiiutiiTbut mental laborers.* No class is exempt. It prohibits n it only the work of one's
ordinary calling, but any work
done for gain. Just so, but the
enquiry will arise in the average
mind whether it is not a trine
too sweeping. In so far as its
design is to prevent individual or
corporate greed from coercing
the laborer to work seven days
in the week, or to prevent any
person or persons from so pursuing their regular vocations on
the Sabbath as to become a
menace to the rights and liberties of others, or to treat every
class in the community with the
same even handed justice, it will
receive the hearty endorsement
of all intelligent and right-thinking citizens. Rut by what right,
human or divine, does tha state
assume to enter the sacred precincts of a man's private life and
say that his hands and his brain
shall alike refrain on Sunday
from those activities which engage their energies during the
other six days of the week. We
maintain that every man has an
inherent and God given right to
exercise his own powers whenever, wherever and however he
may elect, so long as he does not
trespass upon the similarrights
of his fellows. Within these limitations the individual is supreme and across their borders
no authority on earth, whether
ecclesiastical or legislative, may
venture without committing
an unpardonable and indefensible trespass. To Deity alone
remains the right to enforce His
own laws in His own ways within these sacred precincts. No
good end has ever been served
by the over-zealous incursions of
mankind into this realm, however pious of purpose they may
have been. In short, neither
piety or religion can be created
by legislative enactment. While,
therefore, we will not yield second
place to anybody in loyalty to
the Divine institution of the
Sabbath, we cannot but regret
the unfortunate wording of a
measure, whose authors must be
credited with the fullest measure
of sincerity and earnestness.
In conclusion, and apart from
political bias, we must express
our sympathy with the Attorney-
General of this province in the
peculiarly trying position in
which he finds himself placed in
connection with the enforcement
of the new law, No valid reason
has yet been adduced for Section
15 of the Act in question, which
provides that "no action or
prosecution for a violation of
this Act shall be commenced
without the leave of the Attorney-General for the province
in which the offence is alleged to
have been committed." No other
law on the statute books contains such a provision. Why
this, unless it be, as the opponents of the Ottawa administration suggest, for the purpose of
shuffling the responsibility of administering an unpopular
measure off upon other shoulders?
If Sabbath Day legislation is
ultra vires of the provincial
authorities, why should ihe latter
be saddled with the onus of
saying whether a Federal measure, in whose enactment they can
have no voice, shall become effective or remain a dead ietter? To
say the least the situation is unfortunate and one not calculated
to foster good feeling between
the federal and provincial
It begins to look as though
Chilliwack would soon don tne
dignities .of city-hood. Nearly a
year ago a largely signed petition on which appeared the names
of nearly every property owner
within the proposed limits of the
new corporation was prepared,
and all the other neivtssary pre-
liiuininary steps taken to fulfil
the requirements of the Municipal Clauses Act governing such
cases. Hut there have been delays ut several stages of the
work, occasioned chiefly by the
difficulty in getting busy men
on the committee to perforin gratuitous service. At; last, however,
it looks as though the goal
were near. S. A, Cawley, who is
chairman of the Citizen's Committee, started for Victoria, on
Thursday morning armed with
all the necessary data and documents to put the matter finally
and fully before the Attorney-
General. Unless some unforseen
difficulty should arise, the prayer
of the petitioners is likely to be
granted within the next few days,
and with the bursting of buds
and the bloom of spring flowers,
our hitherto unchristened burg
will burst forth in all the glories
of an incorporated city. "The city
of Chilliwack" will certainly
sound scrumptious, and then let
the town of Vancouver and the
village of New Westminster look
to their laurels. We gave them
and the sleepy hamlet of Victoria
fair and timely warning that the
metropolis of the Fraser Valley
will soon be in the race for the
premier place among the cities
of British Columbia.

One of the most important
happenings of the week was the
Carman S. S. Concert which has
become a fixed Easter anniversary. That it is popular was
evidenced by an audience which
completely packed the building,
in fact many were unable to gain
admittance and had to go away.
Much of the success must be attributed to Mrs. E. A. Wells and
the Misses C. E. Stevenson,
Caroline Knight, and Pearl E.
Pearson who had charge of the
programme. The costuming
was better than in former years
and good judgment had been ex-
cerised in choosing speakers and
singers who were able to make
themselves distinctly heard. Especially was this noticeable in the
dialogues. The programme was
quite lengthy and we would hardly like to trespass on the generosity of The Advance to insert
it here in full. Suffice to say
that every part was well .taken.
We would like to suggest before
closing that a fixed rule should
be adopted in connection wjth
Children's evening entertainments, that when the programme
presented is ample no performer
should be subject to encores. It
would be also well for public
safety to have better means of
egress provided for the building.
An incipient fire at any stage of
the proceeding would have been
attended with results most disastrous.

It is not often in this law-abiding
community that it becomes necessary
to make complaint on account of the
abuse of dumb animals. Unfortunately,

delight in the exercise of their superior
strength and intelligence to wantonly
torture the humbler creation. A case

It seems that an inoffensive little dog,
which somehow strayed into the town
during the winter from some unknown
quarter, has been availing himself of
the friendly shelter of a kind-hearted
lady's premises. A couple of days ago
the little animal came tearing into its
adopted home howling with pain and
terror, and bearing a tin can tied to his
tail. Examination revealed the further
fact that his sufferings had been intensified by a liberal application of turpentine. If the fiend who perpetrated this
brilliant bit of cruelty could be located
���and his identity is strongly suspected
���he would likely prove to be the same
individual who has from time to time
poisoned dogs in the community. Just
what form of punishment should be
meted out to such characters it is not
easy to suggest, but in our opinion the
pillory or the whipping post would prove
the most effective remedies for such
dastardly cowardice.

Always Keeps Chamberlain's Couqh
Remedy In His House
"We would not be without Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It is kept on
hand continually in our home," says W.
W. Kearney, editor of the Independent,
Lowry City, Mo. That is just what
every family should do. When kept at
hand ready for instant use, a cold may
be checked at the outset and cured in
much less time than after it has become
settled in the system. This remedy is
also without a peer for croup in children, and will prevent the attack when
given as soon as the child becomes
hoarse, or even after the croupy cough
appears, which can only be done when
the remedy is kept at hand. For sale

Select Your Medicine With Care.
In debility and weakness medicine
should be mild and far-reaching. Many
pills and purgatives are too harsh, are
drasti: instead of curative. Excesssive
action is always followed by depression,
and knowing this, Dr. Hamilton devised
, his pills of Mandrake and Butternut so
as to mildly increase liver and kidney
activity, flush out the elementary canal,
tone and regulate the bowels. Thus do
Dr. Hamilton's Pills eliminate poisons
from the body, restore clearness to the
skin, bring strength and that sweet
restorer of health-sleep. Best medicine on earth, 25; per box at all deal-

Ferrozone has given me a new lease of

nervous exhaustion I was scarcely able
to drag myself around. My appetite
was gone, I had no color or ambition
and felt used up. One box of Ferrozone started me back to health. I took
a number of boxes and my health was
completely restored." For men who

Among the! An-ko-me-nums of the
Pacific Coast.
There has just come to our
table from the publishers, William Briggs, Toronto, a neat
little volume of nearly 250 pages
bearing the above title. A community which knows the author
so well as do the people of the
Fraser Valley, need not be told
that this book is one which will
hold the interest of the reader
from the title page to the close
of the last chapter.
Mr. Crosby's well known
fascination of speech, both as a
conversationalist and as an
orator, is equally in evidence in
the written narrative and carries
the reader along from page to
page, tempting him to finish the
entire volume at a sitting. The
authors style is simple and
natural, direct and earnest, and
delightfully free from any artificial attempt at rhetorical effect.
There is no redundancy of speech
and the reader is never wearied
by side excursions or prolonged
dissertations so common to many
authors Mr. Crosby has something to tell and tells it.
The book opens with an appreciative introduction by Dr. A.
Sutherland, Secretary of Foreign
Missionsof the Methodist Church
of Canada. Then follows the
authors presentation of the
people about whom he is to
write, "the An-ko-me-nums, a
branch of the great Salish or
Flathead family of Indians,
whose territory is that part of
the Pacific Coast now known as
Northern Oregon, Washington
and Southern British Columbia."
Briefly sketching the history of
the religious life of these people,
he proceeds without delay to tell
the story of his twelve years of
unbroken labor among them.
British Columbians who know
the ground traversed by the
missionary during these years
and who understand the conditions under which his work
was done, can most fully appreciate the heroic toils of this pioneer preacher. And yet he
never assumes the pose of a hero
but tells his story simply and
modestly. The book should
have a large sale both east and
west���in the east because of
the reliable information which
it gives of British Columbia and its aboriginal inhabitants,
and in the west on account of
strong local colour. Especially
should every home in Chilliwack
possess a copy, because of the
space which is devoted to this
place as well as of the fact that
the author is one of our honored
citizens. A goodly number of
the excellent half-tone cuts which
adorn the pages of this book are
of local subjects includingpotrait
of the author, the first Protestant church in the Chilliwack
valley, Coqualeetza Institute, a
group of Coqualeetza students,
Skowkale church and Skowkale
mission people.
Mr. Crosby's well known enthusiasm respecting the marvellous resources and mighty
possibilities of his adopted Province finds expression in a brief
concluding chapter from which
we quote the following paragraph :--
"The future for British Columbia looks very bright, with four
transcontinential railways seeking entrance through her unopened valleys and stretches of
uplandjto ports on her magnificent shore line; with a climate
unexcelled for variety, from the
clear, bracing, dry climate of
the interior to the mild, humid
climate of the coast; with her
abundant resources of timber,
minerals, fish, farm and orchard;
with the ever-widening market
of the Orient, as well as in the
great North-West provinces, for
her products, she must speedily
take her place as the imperial
province of our great Dominion."
In conclusion the author expresses the hope that he may
have the privilege of telling of
his twenty-five years among tbe
Indians of the north in
another book.
We understand that the present volume may be had from H.
.!. Barber, Chilliwack. The price
Is $1.85.
When You Are Introduced,
"When she is being presented
to an older woman, a lady should
rise, but she keeps her seat
when a younger woman or a man
is presented to her. A hostess,
however, always rises and offers
her hand to all her guests. Upon
receiving an introduction it is
not necessary to say anything at
all, such as 'how do you do,
'pleased to meet you,' etc. A
woman may smile and bow her
acknowledgment, unless she
wishes to show special friendliness, when she extends her
hand. Men usually shake hands
with each other. It is a mistake
to embarras a lady by leading
her about a room and presenting
her thus to a roomful of people.
If there be a small group of
people, the hostess then may say,
after greeting her, 'Mrs. Black,
let me present Miss Brown, Miss
Elsie Brown, Captain White and
Doctor Green.' Men should
always be taken to a lady to be
introduced. In her own home a
hostess may introduce as she
pleases, everyone to everyone
else, but it is always well to remember, at other places, such as
large balls, receptions or indiscriminate gatherings of any kind,
that we must consult the wishes
of others before giving introductions. As the introducer is always responsible for the person
presented, much care should be
taken in this respect, and the
possibility of thrusting upon another an unwelcome acquaintance
avoided. A lady's permission
must always be asked before
presenting to her a man who
wishes to make her acquaintance.
Of course, there are exceptions
to all rules and at small, informal
dances among young people who
know each other well, girls and
boys freely introduce their friends
without asking permission."���

Dtnt Use Greasy Liniments.
A century ago they were popular, j
Today people want ssmething easy to
apply, certain in results, and above all j
a clean liniment. When Nerviline is
applied aches and pains disappear by
the pores absorb its soothing healing
properties. Nerviline penetrates to the
core of the pain, eases instantly, and
leaves no oily, bod smelling memory behind. Good to take in, capital to rub
on, and five times more powerful in destroying pain than any oily liniment.

very useful article could be dispensed
with no longer. Mr. Smith says if
work keeps increasing he will have to
have help and possibly larger premises.
The high class work that he turns out
is the key note of his success.

The Easter musical service at the
Methodist Church last Sunday morning
was furnished by the Intermediate
League under the direction of Mrs
G. H. W. Ashwell. The League had
decorated the building very artistically
with Bunting, Oregon Grape,
Crocuses, and Easter lilies, and the
members were all daintily dressed in
white for the occasion. A short address was given by the Pastor. In
the afternoon the exercises were repeated for the benefit of the Sunday
School. Great credit is due to Mrs.
Ashwell for her painstaking work,
which resulted so successfully.
E. G. Stover of New Westminster,
arrived in town on Tuesday from Hope
with a herd of cattle which he had
just purchased from William Bristol of
that place. A number of Hope boys
who helped him down with his charge,
returned home on the following day.
Mr. Bristol, who has passed the four
score mark, is well known throughout
this district since the days when he
used to carry her majesty's mails from
Westminster to Hope, before the advent of railroad or steamboat. He is
one of the few remaining landmarks
pointing to the old order of things in
"the early days." With the passing of
this generation much of interesting
history of pioneer days in British Columbia will be lost forever.

A telegram received on Wednesday
by Mr. W. T. Jackman conveyed the
sad intelligence of the death of Mrs.
John Caesar, of Markdale, Ont, mother
of Misses Edith and Gertrude Caesar,
who are at present guests of Mr. and
Mrs. Jackman. Mrs. Caesar's death
was quite unexpected, as she had only
been ill a short time. The Misses Caesar
have the sympathy of their many Chilliwack friends at this time.
A few days ago Albert Knight of
Sardis, in pulling parsnips in his garden
got hold of one whose deep attachment
to mother earth at least breaks all
local records. Mr. Knight, however,
was determined to get to the bottom
of the matter and kept on pulling until
he had unearthed over six feet of root,
which this ambitious vegetable had sent
Chinaward last season. If any of our
readers wish to verify this statement
by ocular demonstration, they may see
the parsnip in question, tail and all, in
the window of Cawley & Paisley's
office, Wellington Street.
Word has just been received from
Hope that Engineer Tracy of the G. N.
Ry. Co., is at present in that place
busily engaged in organizing a survey
party to go into the mountains again as
soon as possible. This looks as though
the G. N. Ry. were determined to solve
the problem of putting a line over the
Hope mountain. Next to the building
of the tramline to Westminster the
question of the plans of the Hill company in this district are of vital interest
to the people of Chilliwack. Everybody who has the interests of the place
at heart earnestly desires to see the
proposed line of the G. N. Ry. take the
Hope mountain route. Definite announcement of the Company's decision
in this matter will be eagerly awaited.

The market was held as usual again
this week on Friday, and was quite up
to average in the amount of goods offered and the attendance. Meats
generally showed an upward trend in
prices and met with ready sale. Dressed beef advanced from half a cent to
one cent per pound for both front and
hind quarters, over the prices of last
week. Mutton was not any too plentiful and all went at 14c. The supply of
veal was good and all sold at the quotations given. Pork showed an increase of half a cent and changed hands
readily. The supply of eggs, which was
not up to the demand, retailed at
30c and wholesaled at 25c, an advance
of five cents in the week. The offering
of butter all went readily at 35c.
Chickens and fowl were none too plen-
tifnl, with a stiffening of prices. Potatoes still showed advance in price
and the supply was readily taken at
$25.00 and $26.00 per ton.
